A few years back, I chaperoned some of my at-risk students to a 1 day Quantum Learning session. The presenters shared some valuable insights with all the students that attended. One such insight went something like this…
“Imagine that you received $86,400 a day for the rest of the life. The only condition to having the money is that you had to use it all that day. If you didn’t use all the money, it would just disappear. What would you buy with that money?” Of course the students raised their hands and offered suggestions of cars, houses, clothes, electronics, etc…
The presenter continued, “Well, you already receive this great gift every day. But instead of receiving it in money, you receive it in time. You receive 86,400 seconds every day. You can choose to use them wisely, or you can just let them disappear. The choice is yours.”
Thinking about that, I also remember something I once heard that was ministry related. The minister asked everyone to consider where they spend the majority of their expendable income. “Where does it go? Does it go to the movies, going out to eat or buying the latest gadget? If you examine where your money goes, you can determine what is important in your life.”
Time and Money, Money and Time, after examining both of these, you can determine what is important in your life or in the life of any organization.
